December 2, 2019

    SPOILER**
    For everyone saying the Pitt / Bruce Lee fight was a dream, you're incorrect. That was Pitt remembering WHY Kurt Russell won't let him on set anymore. The distinction is that when Pitt drops Leo off, and Leo says Kurt Russell won't hire Pitt, that's for the Western he's shooting with Timothy Olyphant. The flashback is for the Green Hornet show, which Leo mentions to Pacino he did a guest spot on. Pitt is the stunt double for Leo on Green Hornet, where Bruce Lee was the co-star as Kato, which is why Pitt calls him Kato during the scene and Lee is wearing his classic Kato chauffeur uniform from the show. So again, Pitt is remembering the last time Kurt Russell allowed him on set. So when he snaps out of the flashback, he shrugs because he understands why Russell won't hire him back after that.

    And this is why you trust critics and not professional fans with their f—king “math”

  • Reply Robert Grant August 25, 2019 at 11:17 pm

    I think the point of showing Pitt probably killed his wife was just to establish the part of his character which would allow him to attack the female murderers so brutally. If we see him as a good guy then we can't really marry that up with the events at the end of the film.

    I feel that Tarantino is sick to put vaginas in a pedestal, and yes, i agree with him that women are sometimes dirty bitches. The film overall was a bad film, but that approach to women was very fine by me.

    I thought the movie was good. However the portrayal of the murderers at the end was not to my taste. They murdered other people that was overshadowed in this movie. I don’t know if I feel the twist was a good idea

    This is the worst take on the movie by far

  • Reply Coffee Allan August 27, 2019 at 7:11 am

    "Once upon.." is a non-hero- journey-fairy-tale about the fairy tale industry. If there is any morale it must be in the meta.

  • Reply Federico S August 27, 2019 at 1:09 pm

    For me seeing Tate snoring made her more endearing. Don’t see what the problem is with the dirty feet or the hair in the armpits either. Don’t see any objectification either (aside for the Pitt scene in the roof, which is fine by me). Tate is portayed as a talented innocent angel, in part as an homage but also to generate dread about what is going to happen to her.

  • Reply Ponette August 27, 2019 at 5:08 pm

    I too am ambivlilant about this movie. Pitt was radiant. Leo amazing. I was disturbed by LC scenes with that lil actress. I felt so much subtext to those scenes it creeped me out. In a way, along with all the other messages QT wanted to convey- I took the ending as a love letter to ST.

    After such an inept review, maybe you should rename your YouTube page to Beyond the Joke. Sounds like you've got an unwarranted axe to grind with Tarantino there Grace. Think I'll stick with reviewers who don't have hang-ups about women snoring.

  • Reply Funk O'Matic August 30, 2019 at 10:27 am

    saw it…enjoy it…n for those having a problem with lack of woman voices in it…the story is NOT about sharon tate… it's about..n being told from the two main MALE protagonists' points of view…
    the finale works for me much better than the similar type preceding it in Inglourious Basterds…

  • Reply Bruno Cabral September 3, 2019 at 6:17 am

    The problem with this film was the advertising. I didn't know about Sharon Tate real fate, and now that I know it, the ending has a total different impact. But the initial 2/3 of the movie is still unnecessary.

  • Reply altoidyoda September 3, 2019 at 12:14 pm

    Considering how shocking you found a child touching someone’s knee, I guess I’m not that surprised you found the rest of the movie so offensive. The interpretations are super strange though.
    Also there’s actually no evidence that Brad Pitt killed his wife because we’re intentionally not supposed to know. There’s no evidence for or against it. The only thing that matters is that people think he did.

  • Reply Marco M. September 4, 2019 at 8:41 pm

    As a fan of Grace, I'm disgusted by what she's saying.

    This film is literally the opposite of objectification! Tarantino is showing us the natural aspects of humans that we shouldn't look negatively at: armpit hair, snoring, dirty feet. This is what humans look like in real life. We should be celebrating the fact that Hollywood, which is known for its abstract idea of perfect women, made one of the most accurately natural and human movies ever!

  • Reply Leo No September 6, 2019 at 5:07 am

    This film should never have been made. Because of the way Sharon Tate was murdered and because the disgusting murderer is still alive. This disgusting killer is a star in his prison. Through this movie he gets even more fame.

  • Reply Jeremy Stubbs September 6, 2019 at 7:50 pm

Love the way,, in most films,, you jump from getting in a car to getting home,, here,,, your with the driver ,,, listening to the songs on the radio,,, your part of it… love it. The ending was WHAT !!!!!,,, but seeing it again and again,, its just a brilliant way to tell,,,, a different view of what might of happened… As for Brad,,, his best ever,,, he can do humour so good…. love to see a spin off about Cliff booth. I loved this film,, . perfect.

    I haven’t seen this film yet and from what I’ve heard it isn’t great, but it does seem Grace as if you are making a lot of how it is portraying women. It’s a movie, it’s not real life. Is it the case that every film in the future has to portray every female character as perfect or else it’s some sort of slight on women’s rights?

  • Reply Philip Moore October 25, 2019 at 1:15 am

  • Reply B C S October 28, 2019 at 12:32 am

    To talk about some of Grace’s points:

    The case about Sharon’s dirty feet
    She was known to walk around barefoot and would do it as often as possible. She didn’t like wearing shoes.

    Sharon snoring
    Women snore too.

    The Manson Murders
    You sort of sounded like you were defending The Manson family Grace. The Manson Family deserve to be portrayed as brainless children. By the way, would you rather see the murders be portrayed? Cause that is what it sounds like.

She's not obligated to "Role Model" every time she steps in front of a camera. You're disrespecting her choices by rejecting this role as just something an insensitive man made her do. :/
